I am officially on break! Time to rest, recover, and enjoy family. Very needed…and very grateful to have the next two weeks off.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Electrical stim has been a wonderful thing for my neck lately.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Big focus on scap firing exercises.
  • No doctors!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Neck flare, but electrical stim and heat took the edge off.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill & strengthening exercises.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday. I had stomach acupuncture while he did gentle manipulations on my first rib up to my C1. He put in the leave in acupuncture needles in my belly. Last time, they lasted exactly one week. We will see this time…
  • I saw Dr. Rosen after my Larry appointment. It seriously is the best combination of doctor appointments…I work on my body, and then go work on my mind. Ahhhhh. I am so grateful for both of them in my life. Cannot say it enough.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. I’m doing a lot more circuit work for stabilization and cardio right now.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, recumbent bike, and floor exercises.
  • I saw Dr. Winkler, one of my OMM docs on Thursday.. She worked on releasing my diaphragm. It’s been getting stuck lately…
  • Rough nap week. Hopefully I will get back on track next week so I am not a zombie at night.

Whew. This was a LONG week. I definitely overbooked myself, but at least I got a lot done. Now, I rest and recover before the holiday rush begins…and remind myself of the P word…PACING.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. They moved! The new facility is beautiful and HUGE. Looking forward to getting stronger in my new PT “home.”
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Treadmill walking on a higher incline, plus floor strengthening.
  • My acupuncture needles from last Tuesday fell out this past Tuesday. Pretty good when they stay in a full week.
  • I had my yearly gyno appointment. All the lady stuff checked out well.
